RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- North Carolina's Department of Transportation is filling the need of people who prefer unfolding a map to digital technology.

The updated state transportation map is now available. It's free of charge.

Maps are available at welcome centers, rest areas and state DOT offices across the state. Maps also can be ordered online at visitnc.com/statemap or by calling 1-800 VISIT NC.

The transportation department quit putting out an annual map in 2009 and now publishes every two years to cut printing costs. Starting with the last edition, the state map began featuring a quick response code that can be scanned by mobile devices to link directly to NCDOT Mobile.

I have always carried a NC map in my glove compartment even while carrying a smart phone.
And although maps seem anachronistic there's still a lot of people out their that do not have smart phones or "smart" cars.
Kudos to NC DOT for printing them every 2 years to save $.
A map is a treasure trove of information
